Applied Medallion Coin Silver Twist Handle Oyster Ladle
click for details
"Medallion" silverware is characterized by its portraiture of classical figures and was popular in the 1860s. Virtually all makers offered one or more interpretations of this motif, the bulk of which were die cut patterns, while some were engraved, and some cast and applied, as is the case with this example.

It is a 10" long, just under 4.4 T. oz., probably oyster, ladle. Oyster ladles were slightly smaller than that soup, which could run to as much as 14" in length in the mid 19th... Click for details

Having a double Philadelphia provenance, this coin silver spoon is marked with James Watts' horse head emblem, and "George M. Bechtel" for the well-known retailer, 1850-60, and later in partnership with George Eno.

Philo Gilbert Engraved Scene Coin Silver Cake Saw

The pattern (dubbed "Queen of the Sea" by one source) on this 9 1/2" long, substantial weight, 2.4 T. oz., cake saw engenders a lot of discussion among those who follow such matters.

There is a weak consensus that it originated with New York's Philo Gilbert, and indeed his four part pseudo hallmark (lion, leopard, S, bust) appears on this piece, although many other makers placed their names on this pattern, as well, and therein lies the mystery as to definite attribution. "Gorham" and... Click for details

Mid 19th C. Engraved Right  Angle Coin Butter Knife

A charming piece, this 6 7/8" long, 1.0 T. oz., master butter knife is marked only "Coin," so the particular maker is unknown. It dates circa 1860, and has a flat handle that is set at a right angle to the scalloped blade.

This construction commonly incorporates a single piece of silver twisted to create the angle. In this instance, the handle and blade were separately made and seamed together, as evidenced by the structure of the join.

Erroneously attributed by Tere Hagen in her reference work on flatware identification to Reed & Barton, this floral pattern is an early line pattern that was produced by William Durgin. Hagen calls it "Spray" but there is no documentation to that effect. The design features a charming bouquet of flowers, leaves, and grasses tied in a bow.

Examples of this show up in both coin and sterling silver, and only occasionally with the Durgin name or mark. This is stamped "Sterling" and "Pat.... Click for details

Applied Medallion Engine Turned Coin Pie Server

Dating from the 1860s, this pie server features two popular design features of the period. One is the applied classical head of the sort that gave this genre, "Medallion," its name. The second feature is the engine turned surface of the blade. This was a widely used decorative technique at the time, one because it was appealing, and likely two, because it showed off a specialized capacity of the manufacturers.

This measures 9" long and weighs 2.0 T. oz. The blade is 4 1/4 by 2 5/8" at... Click for details
